Tryst- She has not been started under saddle. She does naturally carry her head very low, could that cause the muscle on her poll?

MC- I'm not sure what you mean by square in the back? Her back is pretty even through out and her neck and back seemed to be proportional if that's what you mean.

When I bestride her, I soar, I am a hawk. She trots the air, the earth sings when she touches it. She lends me the wings I lack

I am sorry to confuse you, I prolly didn't say it right lol.

This pic isn't a good one of my mare standing square, but it is the easiest one for me to pull up. I like my reining horses to have perfect hocks and a nice well balanced hindquarter. This really helps with the stop and reduces any issues that could happen during a stop. Both my reining mares I show in halter, I truly believe reining horses need to be well balanced and nicely put together but that is for the more competitive route. I think for a fun all round horse she would be fine. Also if you really like her and click you guys will do wonderful at whatever you do. :)

Ohhh okay, yes she was balanced in the hind quarters from what I could tell. But then again I'm judging against my miss fit pleasure horse who has so many different problems and breeds mixed into her most horses do look good conformation wise to me.
And Roux- I'm sorry I didn't see your comment earlier when I had posted. I work with a dressage trainer in Tijerras, she she knows the basics of reining. If you're looking for strictly a reining trainer there is one in Bernallilo and another in Belen. The one in Belen actually worked with Hollywood Dun It himself. I'd be happy to pass along the info if those are places that are close to you.
